Lingerie and The Exceptional Woman

As a keen writer and wanting to fill that need inside to spill words out, I decided to start this blog. So I’ll begin by introducing myself and tell you a bit about what my blog is all about, although I’m sure this will develop and splash out into many tangents as I go.

My name is Karolina and I am the designer behind luxury lingerie brand Karolina Couture Lingerie based in Australia. I’ve been busy at a number of fashion related and administrative jobs over my working life, and a few years back started knuckling down in the evenings developing my lingerie brand. Since studying fashion I’d always wanted to have my own label and anyone who has imagined doing this or has done so can tell you it’s hard enough to determine exactly what your label will be, what you’ll design and why it will be so different in such a flooded marketplace. And it’s another level of tricky actually doing it. It’s kind of scary. It’s also kind of extraordinary.

I love lingerie! Everything about good quality, beautiful lingerie is incredible; the soft fabrics, the trims, the buckles, buttons, the lace, the silk. It’s like looking at a piece of intricate art and when you’re able to enjoy this decadent art by wearing it, well that really takes the pleasure cake. As much as a costume changes the way an actor feels and enables another level of character embodiment, I believe great lingerie can make a woman feel like herself at her absolute best. It can make her feel happy, comfortable, sexy, feminine and empowered. So for me, my fashion label had to be all things lingerie.

My label Karolina Couture Lingerie is all about love; my love of the finest fabrics cut into the most curvaceous shapes and my admiration of wonderful women. I’ve been so inspired by incredible women I’ve met, read about, heard about and who are close to my heart that I wanted to write for these women and in dedication of them. Karolina Couture Lingerie is hand-made with care, with time and with heart for women who are nothing short of exceptional, and to enable these women to feel how truly exceptional they are.

My blog will cover true inspiring stories of exceptional women, some well-known and some you wish you knew. I’ll also write about issues that women face today and of course about luxury lingerie and the other finer aspects of life.

If there is a topic you’d like me to discuss or you’d like your voice heard please send me an email to or leave a comment at the end of my post.

Thanks for reading and I’m looking forward to sharing my musings and knicker related activities with you.
